Tottenham Hotspur trio Christian Eriksen, Serge Aurier and Victor Wanyama are likely to stay. However, Marcus Edwards could still leave Tottenham before today’s deadline, according to The London Evening Standard.
Today is the European transfer deadline and Tottenham will be relieved when it closes. This will put any Eriksen speculation to bed until January. The Danish midfielder is now likely to stay – just one day after scoring in the North London derby.
Aurier and Wanyama are also unlikely to secure deadline day exits. Aurier is on the transfer list but there have been no offers for him. Meanwhile, Wanyama’s move to Club Brugge collapsed.
There could still be one player leaving Tottenham today, though. Edwards might join Italian club Udinese Calcio before the window closes. Mauricio Pochettino is ready to let the 20-year-old leave despite comparing him to Lionel Messi in the past.
The England U20 midfielder spent last season on loan in the Netherlands with Excelsior. He played 28 times for the Rotterdam-based Eredivisie club, scoring twice and providing four assists. But now he could be set for a permanent exit.
Edwards has failed to live up to his potential despite the early-career hype. The diminutive midfielder is clearly a talented player with natural ability but his attitude was questioned at Norwich City and he has done little to convince Pochettino to promote him.
During his time in Holland, Edwards showed glimpses of his ability without finding a consistently high level. Udinese could be a good career move for the left-footed midfielder, who will be hoping for immediate first-team chances abroad.
